Luckily for Prince William, back in the days of his youth, social media was nothing but a whisper, and so most it's likely that most of his embarrassing teenage activities were kept away from prying eyes.

However, one rare gem of footage showing off his extraordinary dad dancing skills at a gig has surfaced and we can't stop watching it.

The clip, taken during a 2007 Nelly Furtado performance at a Princess Diana memorial concert, shows Prince William dancing like there's no tomorrow, alongside friends and his cousins Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, and has recently resurfaced on Twitter.

Whilst Eugenie and Beatrice can be seen bopping along happily to the tunes of Nelly Furtado — who appeared alongside other '00s acts such as Lily Allen, Kanye West and Natasha Bedingfield (all of William and Harry's favourite artists at the time), according to a Telegraph news report published at the time —) William can be seen throwing some questionable shapes in a booth.

His future wife, Kate Middleton, apparently also attended the event with her family, but was actually on a break from her relationship with William at the time.

Prince William got up on stage to open to show, explaining that the event was 'about all that our mother loved in life... Her music, her dancing, her charities and her family and friends,' before Harry inserted his trademark humour into the situation:

'When William and I first had the idea we forgot we would end up standing here desperately trying to think of something funny to say. We'll leave that to the funny people — and Ricky Gervais.'

Considering how formally the Royal Family act at most public events, there's something so relaxing about seeing them let loose and really enjoy themselves.

Here's to more videos being discovered soon!
